Rupert Murdoch is one of the most ruthless and repugnant businessmen in the world. His low-brow style of journalism, as exhibited by several of his papers. gives a bad impression for the industry. Therefore the in-your-face rebuke today that came in a stunning report is justice for Murdoch.
What is so wonderful about this report is that it directly questions the integrity and honesty of Murdoch. Since the prig has none of either, the report then is a major success at underlining the truth.
But what does all this mean to the cranky old bastard, Rupert Murdoch?
BBC business editor Robert Peston said it would push Ofcom, the media regulator, closer to the conclusion that BSkyB – 39% owned by News Corp – is not fit and proper to hold a broadcasting licence.
Rupert Murdoch “is not a fit person to exercise the stewardship of a major international company”, MPs have said.
The culture committee questioned journalists and bosses at the now-closed News of the World, as well as police and lawyers for hacking victims.
Its report has concluded that Mr Murdoch exhibited “wilful blindness” to what was going on in News Corporation.
